I believe that two canoes of exact same design but different weight would paddle similar if the same waterline length were submerged! The greater the rocker,..the greater the difference in submerged hull-length and the more likely the canoe would be effected by wind and have its tracking characteristics affected. SO what I mean is a Wenonah Prism would probably have less noticeable handling differences between a very lightweight composite layup and a heavier royalex layup than say,...a Mad River Guide with some rocker.
